At a day shy of 4 months and a mere 10 pounds 5 ounces we went in for open heart surgery.
Now that we are on the other side, I feel blessed to have walked this heart journey. I appreciate so much more in life. I will never be able to thank her surgeon enough. I made him a keychain for a gift - seems kind of ridiculous that's all I can do for him when he saved her life...but he knows how many love him.
She still has a very small VSD (hole between her ventricles) by the heart patch & hopefully that will grow shut as she grows older. For now we don't go back to her cardio until February & 6 months away from the cardio man is just something I have looked forward to for a long time!
